Sheet Pan Salmon Dinner
I know I talk about school a lot - but that is my life. I am a teacher. I love being a teacher. But being a teacher on the first day of a new semester makes me want to vomit. In the 45 minutes before class started today I peed three times. I hope my students never find this. They don't need to know we get nervous too. I never know how to start. I am not a strict teacher and I usually base my classroom management around rapport. But this school I am at is very different, and I have mostly juniors with special education needs, so there has to be a lot more structure and a little more firmness. But it is hard to find the right balance. I am sure I will always be playing with this. Needless to say by the end of the day I am brain dead and I cannot even think. So easy dinners are 100% necessary. There is no other option. Hence this second sheet pan dinner. Perfection.
Let me pre-warn you, judge away, but I like overcooked salmon. I like my beef rare, but salmon cooooooked. I know it ruins it for everyone else, but I can't help it. So be warned...
- 2 fillets salmon
- 2 handfuls green beans
- 1 lb baby potatoes, cut into eights
- 2 tblsp fat
- 1 tsp salt
- 1/2 tsp pepper
- 1 tsp onion flakes
- 1/2 tsp thyme
- 1/2 tsp rosemary
- Preheat the oven to 400
- This may seem silly, but put everything on the sheet pan and smother with the butter and spices, and then remove the green beans and salmon - set aside
- Roast the potatoes for 25 mins, then add the green beans, cook for another 10, then add the salmon and cook for 10-15 mins, depending on how you like your salmon cooked ;)
